Knee Osteoarthritis is the second most common disease in the world. High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO) offers a cost effective solution for thousands of patients who currently have no effective treatment options. The Toka- Surgical Simulator is a digital suite of tools to support surgeons in delivering this treatment. Using virtual data-imaging and 3D printing technologies surgeons will be able to train, plan and perform virtual surgery and personalised treatments. The proposed project aims to deliver: 1) A precise preoperative landscape for surgeons to deliver surgical cost efficiency in the existing NHS context. 2) Reduced waiting times and post-operative stays. 3) Reduced future healthcare costs. 4) Improved patient outcomes.
TOKA – HTO digital planning and personalised surgical devices
Knee Osteoarthritis is the second most common disease in the world. High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO) offers a cost-effective solution for thousands of patients who currently have no treatment options.
The TOKA® Surgical Box combines digital planning and 3D-printed operative devices to remove existing barriers to wider HTO adoption in delivering knee-preserving treatment.
Using virtual data imaging, additive manufacturing technologies and supported by a comprehensive training package, surgeons will be able to train, plan and perform virtual patient specific surgery before delivering personalised treatment.
TOKA is designed to deliver significant patient benefits and reductions in healthcare costs.
